Which one is the real me?

I went to the Melbourne Zoo today and I took this picture of a Meerkat.

But it looks like two. Its not hard to work out which one is real, but it makes you think for a second.

One is not really there, its just her reflection on the glass, an illusion due to the late afternoon winter sunshine.

One is real, one is not.

Just like me, I wonder if the person I am today is the new real me. Or not.

  1. I just wanted to let you know that you have a new follower. I am not a babylost mama but I was lead to babylost blogs through my friend Lea's blog (Nicholas's Touch) and have been reading the stories...I became a mom myself last year and am trying to educate myself on how better to deal with women who have lost children, either in birth or post natal, like your beautiful peanut Thomas. My work brings me into contact with people in various stages of grief at various points and I feel trying to understand what parents need and don't need in their grieving process may at least help me do my job better when called to.... Anyways, your story breaks my heart, your angel is gorgeous, and even though I obviously knew that he had passed, reading your entries around that time made me cry and hurt my heart for you and your family. Keep blogging, we are listening, good or bad. Thank you for sharing your story amd I hope you don't mind my following it.
